  1. EXCELLENT video!! From what I can see in the video, this is exactly the same generator I have (wattage). Doing the rebuild tomorrow. BUT…got a question. I have looked all over this engine and all the owner's manual info and cannot, for some reason, see anything regarding the horsepower. Anyone know???

  2. Great video. I was able to step thru the repair with your rebuild kit. Found four holes in the center fuel tube completely plugged, Kept spraying with carb cleaner and the gunk disappeared. Followed the video to reassemble. Started on first pull. Much appreciated!! I'm ready for the hurricane season now.

  3. Great video! Without a parts breakdown it was kind of confusing to see if everything was installed correctly….Thanks for your time, because you've saved me time and money!!!
